Hello, I'm Spenser, and I'm grateful for your visit to my profile and for the prospects of working together to improve your science and math learning experience! A bit about myself: I graduated in 2014, magna cum laude with Distinction in Research, from Cornell University with a degree in Nutritional Biochemistry (on a pre-med track). I took a "gap year" between my undergraduate studies and medical school to further pursue my research interests in public health nutrition, nutrigenomics (the... [more]
I've graduated with honors from a highly challenging and competitive undergraduate institution (Cornell University), and have years of experience learning the best ways to prepare and plan for, as well as succeed in, my academics. I've also worked one-on-one with students as a private tutor and teaching assistant to help them acquire necessary study skills (e.g., learning how to construct and follow a study plan, set goals, and balance academic/social priorities) for academic success.
I completed my B.S. in nutritional sciences (concentrating in molecular nutrition), graduating magna cum laude, from the Division of Nutritional Sciences at Cornell University (Ithaca, NY). While at Cornell and prior to medical school, I have published five original research articles in peer-reviewed basic and applied science journals on various topics pertaining to nutrition (nutrigenomics, gastrointestinal physiology and nutrient uptake, nutrient biomarker development, etc.). Also, I have tutored undergraduate and graduate science students at Cornell University as a teaching assistant in nutrition courses (such as NS 3450, Physiochemical and Biological Aspects of Food) as well as supervised student research projects in the nutritional sciences.
